An Afternoon Picnic in Leeds

Written about
15th August 2016

Here's one for your next sunny day agenda - I'm praying that statement might encourage this week's rumoured heat wave to materialise.

Last weekend my boyfriend surprised me with a picnic hamper, stocked with all the essentials for a quick picnic getaway ready for a walk along the Leeds Liverpool canal. We set-off stocked with essential cheeses, meat, baguettes and of course, prosecco - we're doing this right.

Just off the canal is a tiny little park that always seems to be quiet if not completely empty, the perfect picnic set-up, especially with the sun out.

We set ourselves up for the afternoon, settled in to work through our sustenance. Such a simple activity for the day and one I highly recommend. Grab a book or a magazine and your faves and seek out a quiet sun-spot to set yourselves up for the afternoon.

There's this quiet spot hidden away behind the Cardigan Fields retail park on Kirkstall Road - you'd never know it was across the river. A pop-up park has arrived for the summer just by The Light, or I highly recommend Park Place with is a bubble just outside the bustling city centre.

Seeing as I'm now stocked with my hamper, I anticipate picnic trips frequenting my routine in the future, any spots I should hunt down?
